In a win for retailers, the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday unanimously ruled that businesses can challenge reporting requirements in Colorado’s “Amazon tax” law without running afoul of the Tax Injunction Act, which bars federal courts from restraining state tax provisions, in a landmark decision that narrows the law’s scope.
U.S. District Judge Lucy H. Koh on Monday signaled she would preliminarily approve a $415 million settlement to end the high-profile antitrust class action accusing Apple Inc., Google Inc. and others of illegally agreeing not to poach each other’s software engineers, months after rejecting a $325 million deal as too small.
